Nintendo is continuing their push to put their download services up front with three first party titles hitting Japan soon. Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger and Freakyforms Deluxe will both be released on the 3DS eShop on April 10th. Floating Iwata head was quick to show off that Freakforms could be used to recreate Super Mario Bros. 1, albeit in a pseudo-doodle, goofy-fail sort of way.
That led to a segway into the announcement of new pre-paid eShop cards that double as AR cards for a new Mario AR app for the 3DS. It doesn't look like you can do anything too "new" with the AR effect here. It looks like the same "place a card somewhere, watch a videogame character pop out of it" routine we've seen since the 3DS launched, but it's still a nice touch. I imagine that those with a love for all things Mario will buy every card just to scratch that collector's itch. From there, they'll just have to download some actual games I guess. Mario, Luigi, Peach, Goomba, Koopa, and Bowser cards are the only ones announced so far, but that should be enough to start with.
Chances are we'll be getting all three of these new eShop downloads soon enough, so stay tuned.

SkarKrow Work noooooooooooooooooo D:The Dyslexic Laywer I had such a awkward time playing Catherine because it shared the same name as my mother....JayDGee Broforce is coming out of early access on the 15th. I had no Idea it was an early access game.James Internet Ego I have now played all 3 Witcher games. My verdict: Witcher 1 - alright, aged badly, lots of sex. Witcher 2 - good, very short, not much sex at all. Witcher 3 - Excellent in every way. ikiryou I really wish MGO had been implemented with free-roam gameplay PMC (clan) setup instead of the standard matchmaking. Imagine roaming bands of PMC's opposing each other on the battlefield. How sexy would that be?SkarKrow Playing Shantae & The Pirates Curse, must say I'm loving it for the most part, barring the odd WHERE AM I D: momentJayDGee Added a humble code to my steam account when I already had the game. Purely because the soundtrack was attached. Now I see it on 2 friends wishlists.

Y'all need more fibre in your diet, why should a toilet visit take more than 2 minutes?
What are you people doing with your asses. Pixie The Fairy Finished Momohime/Jinkuro's story in Muramasa last night. I always liked that ending. I didn't know there were more endings, though.

I wish I didn't need to type in the level ID myself, though.Shinta Metal Gear Online, Day 2. The maps in this game are amazing. Try out all 3 classes, because they're all pretty different.

I do get to unlock Ashe though, so that's cool.
